As a community bank, we’re dedicated to supporting businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to providing loan programs, we can help businesses hold on to the resources they have through services that help prevent fraud. This is especially important now, when companies are operating with reduced staff, many of whom are working remotely. It’s a time when businesses are especially vulnerable to fraud. In fact, industry experts predict there will be an “explosion” of business and consumer fraud in the coming years.
Protecting Your Business
Positive Pay is a cash management service designed to guard against mailbox theft, check copying, and other scams. This product is especially appropriate for companies that issue a large volume of checks and/or third party ACH Debit transactions. It works by allowing businesses to monitor checks and ACH debits processed for payment against their account and reject unauthorized transactions before losses occur.
- Reduces the risk of financial loss
- Helps to solidify internal controls and audit trails
- Allows the customer to keep their existing account in place if compromised and minimizes the disruption to the business operations
- Includes an optional add on called Payee Positive Pay, which identifies the accuracy of the payee name and stops checks that have an altered name.
